“The answer is no,” said Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey during a Wired video FAQ, replying to the For some time, Twitter has been hinting that it might one day give in to its’ users’ clamouring for a tweet - editing But all the same: it doesn’t seem likely that an edit button is coming any time soon

Despite the Twitter community's constant yearning and begging for a tweet edit button, company CEO Jack Dorsey said in a video interview published this week by Wired that it'll "probably never" happen.

For years, Twitter users have been advocating for an edit button so that they could correct published tweets with grammar errors or broken links. Internet celebrities famous in the Twittersphere like Kim Kardashian and Jeffree Star, too, have publicly endorsed their support for the addition of such a tool. While the company has acknowledged this request from the public, nothing had come out of it; though Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has noted that the company has considered adding variations of an edit button, he finally admitted that, "we'll probably never do it."

  X-rays reveal how the shutter button works on the iPhone Smart Battery Case There are some neat electronics in the caseIf you look closely at the picture at the top of this post, you can see two thin circuits running down from the button toward the battery before they take a right turn to the circuit board, which connects to the Lightning port, which transmits data to and from the iPhone connected to the case. Presumably, when you push the button, those circuits are telling the circuit board to tell the iPhone to open up the camera app so you can snap photos.

Twitter chief Jack Dorsey said an edit button is not coming to Twitter this year and "probably" never will, in a new video interview from Wired. Editing tweets could also become an issue if someone changes what they said after users reply to their messages. While fixing typos and bad links would be

Dorsey cites several reasons why an edit button will never materialize on the platform including the company's desire to stay true to the original, SMS text message-based platform as well as their ambition to keep users safe from retweeting content whose original message has been significantly modified.

Still, in an attempt to satisfy the service's users, Dorsey explained that the company has considered giving users up to 30 seconds or a minute to edit their tweet; this would result in a delayed publication of all tweets, a change that doesn't line up with the original purpose of Twitter, which is to connect people in real time with what's happening in the world and in the lives of its users. Delaying publications would take away the live news aspect of the platform.

Ultimately, this decision has been made to protect users, therefore, as Dorsey confirmed, Twitter will definitely not be getting an edit button in 2020 or at anytime in the future.

The Moon Will Make Mars Disappear Next Week .
Take a break from your regularly scheduled stargazing to watch the moon swallow Mars on Tuesday morning.The moon covers Mars relatively often—according to Sky & Telescope, it will happen five times this year alone—but we don’t always get to see it from Earth. Next week, however, residents of North America can look up to see what’s called a lunar occultation in action. The moon's orbit will bring it between Earth and Mars, allowing the moon to "swallow" the Red Planet over the course of 14 seconds. Mars will stay hidden for just under 90 minutes, and then reemerge from behind the moon.
